Harn Poets-in-Residence program

Since 2010, the Asian art department has partnered with UF professor emerita and noted American poet Debora Greger for its Poet-in-Residence Program. During this time, they have hosted interns of various academic disciplines and experience, ranging from art history through English to creative writing and law. One of the most rewarding experiences for the participants has been time spent in Asian art storage during object studies. Viewings, scheduled several times a semester, feature objects that will be included in upcoming exhibitions and on view in the galleries. The poets then create pieces vividly describing a single object, contemplate a series of prints in an exhibition, and experiment with various poetry forms developed in Asia.
